America Saves Week is February 24 – 29, 2020

Money is a major concern for most people and big stressor for many!  That is why Nancy Reigelsperger, financial educator for Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben County (CCE-Steuben) is encouraging people to take part in the many saving strategies and activities that are part of the AMERICA SAVES campaign.  America Saves Week (February 24 – 29, 2020) is an annual opportunity for individuals to assess their savings and take financial action. Each year, we encourage savers – or potential savers – just like you to set a goal, make a plan, and save automatically.

In conjunction with America Saves Week, CCE-Steuben has organized several FREE events to teach you manage your finances. Plan now to attend several of these sessions led by local experts.
